Wikilink to redirect: in link dialog, item appears as red under "New page"
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Prerequisite: I believe creating a wikilink to a redirect page is OK. For instance linking to "HTC Super3" even though it is a redirect to "HTC Super". If not, please ignore this issue.

Steps:

  1. Write Nālandā in an article
  2. Select the Nālandā word
  3. Click on the link button
  4. The first item in the list is Nālandā in red under the header "New page"

Expected: Why not make the item a bit different to show that it is a redirect, but in any case it should not be red (will not create any redlink) and not marked as "New page".

Yeah, this is the same as bug 49502 - merging with that one.
